“Always Good”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We are locals and always satisfied when we eat here. We brought our out of state guests here for dinner last night, and everybody was quite content when we left. Salads, flatbreads, seafood, and pork chops were all awesome, however, we never expect anything less from Doc Fords.

“Great atmosphere, good food.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I love the vibe at this large restaurant. Outside you often find live music and are right on the water. Inside you can enjoy the AC and a bug free meal. Prices are decent and the food is fresh and tasty. Servers are nice and efficient.

“Good food, music and fun!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stopped in by boat on a Sunday afternoon for drinks and lunch. They have a great selection of rum drinks, beers and other cocktails. The food was also really tasty. We had shrimp tacos with local shrimp. Lots of good flavor. The staff was very helpful and knows the menu. They band outside was fun to listen to. We will be back.

“Great for fans of Randy Wayne White and Doc Ford”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Our family visited Doc Ford's for dinner in June (not crowded). We had made a reservation and asked for a window seat. The person on the phone said that they could not guarantee a window table.
When we arrived, there was not a window table and we were seated at an inside booth. Within 10 minutes, a window table became available and our server was quick to offer to move us...which we did.
The food and service were both good. If you are a "Doc Ford" fan, there is some nice history of Randy Wayne White on the menu with a view of the area he lived as a fishing guide.

“Fun Place”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Doc Ford's is a fun place to dine. The food was excellent. We had outside seating with a great view of the water.They also had a live band for entertainment. The only complaint is the servers are very slow. I think they may be under staffed.
